In a Walter Football poll asking six NFL teams whether Alabama T Cam Robinson will slide into the late first-round, three said yes and three said no.
The three that answered in the affirmative are concerned that Robinson's "inconsistencies from his junior season could cause him to slide." They were also concerned that Robinson could slide due to off-the-field concerns, namely a gun arrest roughly a year ago (the charges were eventually dropped). On the other side of the debate, one team picking in the early teens didn't believe Robinson would be available when they got on the clock. A personnel director of a playoff team said: "For selfish reasons, I would love it if he did slide and was an option for us, but I just don't think it will happen." A director of college scouting for an AFC team picking in the top-20 said his team has a top-15 grade on Robinson as a Russell Okung- or Ryan Clady-type left tackle. "He is top 15 easily. Who else will go before? Bolles? Ramczyk? Not even close." Feb 20 - 3:03 PM

NFL Network's Mike Mayock ranks Alabama's Cam Robinson as the No. 2 interior offensive lineman in the 2017 class.

This is the first time we have seen Robinson listed as an interior lineman and not a tackle. We have only seen Robinson play left tackle throughout his college career, so any other position is a complete projection. In terms of a round or pick prediction, Robinson's evaluation is very much in the air.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. is of the belief that Alabama T Cam Robinson would best fit on the right side in the NFL.

"I think he'd be better as a right tackle in the NFL -- he's a better run-blocker than he is a pass-blocker -- but he's probably going to get a shot on the left side," Kiper writes. There have been consistent rumblings this offseason that the 6-foot-6, 323-pound Robinson might have to shift away from left tackle. Earlier this week, Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline wrote that on film, Robinson "looked stiff [and] displayed poor footwork." A shift is not a given, though, and there are some who believe that trying to move C-Rob away from left tackle could hamper his development.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Alabama T Cam Robinson might have to slide inside to guard in the NFL.

Guard or right tackle. Writes Pauline, "Robinson looked dominant on film but he also looked stiff, displayed poor footwork and will have trouble protecting the edge on Sunday." An NFL source told Walter Football's Charlie Campbell in January that a move from left tackle could potentially cripple Robinson's development in the long run, though, so opinion still swings wildly on this one. On the whole, Pauline views Utah T Garrett Bolles as a better offensive line prospect than the 6-foot-6, 323-pound Robinson.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell received conflicting opinions from NFL team sources regarding the future position of Alabama T Cam Robinson.

Per Campbell, some evaluators "say they see Robinson as a late first-rounder who would be an ideal right tackle." One NFL source was vehemently against flipping the 6-foot-6, 323-pounder from the left side to the right side, though telling Campbell, it could hurt Robinson's development if he is asked to switch off from left tackle. A rock-solid bet for the first round, C-Rob could climb as high as the top 10 or find himself sliding into the 20's come this spring's draft.

NFL Media draft analyst Bucky Brooks writes that Alabama T Cam Robinson "remains a work in progress as a pass protector."

While Brooks still sees Robinson needing improvement on pass plays, he doesn't think this will be a crippling demerit for his draft stock, noting that the 6-foot-6, 323-pounder "displays enough athleticism, balance and body control to develop into a potential blindside tackle in the near future." Brooks has little concern about Robinson's run-blocking prowess, at least, calling him a "big-bodied mauler with the strength and power to move defenders off the ball." The 2016 Outland Trophy winner could potentially land within the first 10 picks come this spring's draft.

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson declared for the NFL Draft.

Robinson started for the Tide from the day he stepped on campus as a true freshman in 2014. The 6-foot-6, 323-pounder won the Outland Trophy (nation's best interior linemen) and the Jacobs Trophy (SEC's top blocker) this past season. His reputation exceeds his play at this point -- Pro Football Focus was a little down on his work in 2016 -- but the talent is very real. Robinson revealed Friday that he received a first-round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee. A top-10 possibility, Robinson's talent level, according to's Gil Brandt, is equal to or greater than that of Miami Dolphins first-round T Laremy Tunsil. Like Tunsil, Robinson has some character concerns. He was arrested in May on marijuana and weapon charges. The case was later dismissed.

A scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Alabama junior T Cam Robinson is "talented but he gets lazy."

Regarding Robinson's draft stock, another scout told MJS's Bob McGinn that "his issues are technical." Said that evaluator, "He is aggressive, big and physical, but he’ll whiff every now and then. All that can be corrected." The 6-foot-6, 323-pounder rebounded from a May arrest on marijuana and weapon charges to put in a 2016 campaign which ultimately netted him the Outland Trophy, awarded to the best interior lineman in the country.

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson was named the winner of the Outland Trophy.

The Outland Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's best interior lineman. Robinson described the experience of winning the award as "surreal." The 6-foot-6, 323-pounder is the fourth Crimson Tide lineman to come away with the prestigious honor. An NFC scout said in late October that Robinson is "not perfect, but [is] going to be a good starter in the [NFL]."

An NFC scout says Alabama junior T Cam Robinson is "going to be a good starter in the league."

"People beat up Cam (Robinson) all the time but I wonder what they will say when they watch his film against (Texas A&M DE Myles) Garrett," he said. "He was good against Garrett. He's not perfect, but he's going to be a good starter in the league. I would probably try him on the right side." Added Lance Zierlein: "I'm one of those analysts who beat Robinson up a little bit in the privacy of my own film room because I want to see more growth and consistency from him as a pass protector. ... Robinson won't always be the cleanest from a technique standpoint when it comes to protecting the passer, but when teams turn on the Texas A&M game, he's going to earn praise for his work."

Alabama junior T Cam Robinson's superb play against Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett caused's Lance Zierlein to reconsider him.

"While I expected Garrett to explode past Robinson with his combination of edge speed and inside spin moves, Robinson was almost always first with his hands, which helped him control the flow of his reps against Garrett," Zierlein wrote. "Robinson played with consistent balance and had an above-average game as a run blocker. Today's tape should make scouts (and his own coaches) much happier." To sprinkle just a few drops of cold water on this evaluation, Garrett wasn't 100-percent healthy on Saturday. Still, Robinson undoubtedly helped his cause.

Eleven NFL clubs will scout the Texas A&M-Alabama game in person.

As we speak, the Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans are all in Tuscaloosa. Perhaps the biggest individual prospect matchup this weekend occurs between Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett and Alabama OT Cam Robinson. "A stout Alabama rushing attack will limit Garrett's pass-rushing opportunities, which will be his best chance to expose the area of Robinson's game that needs the most improvement," noted NFL Media.

Previously suspended junior T Cam Robinson lined up as the team's starting left tackle when Alabama opened fall practice.

Nick Saban stood by Robinson during each step of the process. The rest of the starters included left guard Lester Cotton, center Ross Pierschbacher, right guard Bradley Bozeman and right tackle Jonah Williams. There are a lot of questions surrounding Alabama's offense, outside of the receiver and tight end spots. Even with a new offensive line and stable of running backs, we all know Alabama will continue to control the game on the ground.

Alabama HC Nick Saban indicated that the discipline for junior T Cam Robinson and junior CB Laurence Jones has been administered internally.

Signs have been pointing this way for some time -- particularly after Louisiana DA Jerry Jones declined to prosecute weapons and marijuana charges against Robinson and Jones last month following their May arrest in a West Monroe, Louisiana, park. Saban explained his decision not to levy suspensions, noting that "[b]oth players have done a significant amount of things to change their behavior whether it was police ride alongs, whether it was community service or juvenile groups that need positive role models and influence to make better choices and decisions." Given that the legal troubles have been put to rest and no suspensions are forthcoming, this story should more/less be considered a wrap. NFL teams will certainly be grilling Robinson about all of this after he declares for the draft, though, a decision which could well come in January.

The punishment Alabama administered to junior T Cam Robinson has been revealed.

Robinson and junior cornerback teammate Laurence Jones must: undergo weekly urine tests, have regular drug counseling, participate in monthly video appointments with a mental health consultant and have met with a Tuscaloosa police officer for gun safety/ownership education twice a week. Community service is also included. Louisiana district attorney Jerry Jones declined to prosecute the pair of players. The documents also say both players were indefinitely suspended by head coach Nick Saban on May 17, but as of now there is no indication if either will miss game action.
